Subject: My first show too!
Seriously. It was my first show, I think. I know it was a spring tour show, in Philly, with a Jack Straw opener. And, I remember figuring it out using Deadbase. After listening to show, I realized that this show is why I like certain sort of sounds and why I have been chasing them ever since.

Was kinda high that night, but both me and my friend remember this show as being a real train wreck starting from the beginning of the second set. Goes to show, you don't ever know . . .

The next night,however, without acid, I still remember as one of the best shows I've ever seen. Deadnet just announced that 4/6 (with a smattering of 4/5) will be released as the next "Road Trips" entry.

This was also my first show. 16 years old and two hits of red mirco-dot…Wow!!! Like aadelma said, "I remember very little about the actual music since the scene was new to me". I lost my friends as soon as we got inside. So I figured I’d go to where our seats were. They were also behind the stage but lower down. I remember dancing with some heads and getting high. Lots of elbow room and a very mellow scene. Great first set and a wacky second set. My main recollection of the show was the parking lot scene and the fact that it snowed after the show. I was on a plane to New Orleans the next morning and caught Rush in Biloxi, MS on April 7th.

Subject: Solid show
This was my first show and I have never heard a recording of it before. I remember very little about the actual music since the scene was new to me and a little overwhelming, but listening to this reveals that it was a very solid show for it's time. Nothing amazing, but solid and a great introduction to the many shows which would follow. The main thing that struck me most about The Spectrum was how many people never even went into the stadium itself, just danced up and down the cavernous hallways all evening. I scalped a ticket which was supposed to be stage right but instead was way up and behind the stage, literally the worst seat in the house. Caveat emptor, even at a Dead show!

The "This Day in History" dragnet has caught another one. So glad we have this feature, otherwise I would just get lost over the years in this vault. Brilliant audience recording. Just right. Brilliant show. For Friend of the Devil fans....this one is a gem. Jerry's voice....mmmm, good. Reminds me of the Dead Set version, which I hold as a high watermark for that tune. That Bertha>Playin opener really gets it going in the second set. Within the first words of Ship of Fools, you are reminded again how great Garcia's voice is, on this night. One caution--there is an obnoxious dork who is yelling Saint Stephen multiple times during the first of the sick Playin' in the Band jams. WTF?
